It is broadly recognized that gender equality (equality between men and women) is essential for organizational growth, ensuring equality between women and men is not only a necessity from a rights perspective, but it also makes sense in all ramification. Most industrialized countries like Canada have long since evolved from the use of women in jobs such as servants, dressmakers, seamstresses, tailors, housekeepers, launderers, milliners and saleswomen as widely practiced in the 20th century. Racial diversity or racialized groups in the Canadian context can also be termed as visible minority. Visible minorities are defined by the Canadian Employment Equity Act as “persons, other than Aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white
Today, Canadian women equality had developed rapidly over the years, and even faster than its Western hemisphere counterpart. Women are given the chance to participate next to their male counterparts in government and politics and participate in jobs or activities that were once a gender-based job. Women have legal rights to an education, the right to vote and the right for equal pay; a choice to date and who to marry; and make decisions concerning their family and health care. And unlike the Eastern Hemisphere cultures, women have the right to file for a divorce and make choices regarding their body, such as abortion or the use of birth control. Provided, Canada supported abortion so much that they even made a law that allows Canadians for free of charge abortion.

Gender equality not only a very important political issue to speak about, but also we talk about it almost every day in our normal daily conversations. Democracy also happens to be an interesting political topic that many people would love to be a part of. Somehow both topics combined makes a very interesting argument and they complete one another, because we can not have democracy without equality and part of being equal is having gender equality. International democratization is a huge step towards development, but also it makes us more aware about what are the roles of each gender in a democracy. Gender equality may not exist today fully, but many countries such as Canada do fight for it through institutions like the United Nations and asking we should set laws to support and promote gender equality.
